Prajnya invites applications for the 2022 R. Rajaram Media Fellowship.
Founded in the memory of R. Rajaram in his centenary year, the Rajaram Fellowship is envisioned as a programme of support–financial, mentoring and networking–for original research on sexual or gender-based violence. The Rajaram Media Fellowship is intended to support original research for a media project on a subject relating to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). The projects must be completed within a mutually agreed time-frame of no longer than one year. Working journalists in India, from any medium and in any language, may apply.
The Rajaram Media Fellowship is intended to support research for a media project–feature or long-form articles, a special issue, a documentary or digital product–on SGBV. It will not cover production costs. The proposed project must be original and have a feasible research design. The applicant must have a concrete plan for publication, screening or other public sharing of the research material.
Media Research fellows may be employees of a particular publication or platform or they may be freelancers. They should have a minimum of three years of reporting experience.
Applications will be accepted only via email ([email protected]) and must be submitted by July 15, 2022.
All application material must be in English, with the exception of writing samples, which can be in any language (including English).
Only complete applications will be considered, and they must include:

The Prajnya Archives are offering two six-month internships a year, starting from 2017. For those who are selected, the Internships present an opportunity to learn practical documentation skills, to visualise careers in history and to engage with the exciting and important work of making visible South Asian women’s engagement with the world around them.
The Prajnya Archives are a user-generated repository of visual records that document the role that women have played in the public sphere. We invite people to upload their photos on an on-going basis and also put out thematic calls for photos at least once a year. These entries are then added to the Archives.
Internship responsibilities will include:
The Interns will work with both the Archives Curators and with the Prajnya Team. They will be expected to put in about 15 hours a week. They will receive a letter of completion on successfully finishing their assignments.
We are looking for an Archives Intern with an established interest in history, women’s studies, museum studies or anthropology, although people from other backgrounds are invited to apply.
This is an unpaid internship. A Chennai location would suit us best but relocation is not essential as much of the work will be done online.
